Amulets and Superstitions: The Original Texts With Translations and Descriptions of a Long Series of Egyptian, Sumerian, Assyrian, Hebrew, Christian (Paperback) by Sir E. A. Wallis Budge

From the evil eye to the crucifix, this treatment presents a thorough and fascinating exploration of amulets and talismans of many cultures and traditions. The British Museum's noted Egyptologist examines the origins of seals, stones, rings, and other items related to Arab, Persian, Babylonian, Assyrian, Egyptian, Ethiopian, Gnostic, Hebrew, and other sources.

Not strictly about ancient Egypt, this is a major book on the history of magical beliefs, use of amulets and  related superstitions among people of the Middle East.

Very limited supply.  Unabridged republication of original (1930) London Edition. 22 plates and 300 text figures,   543 pages
